Homabay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga has cried foul after her campaign billboard was brought down in Oyugis town.

Taking to her social media pages, Wanga who is vying for Homabay County governor seat claimed that her billboard was brought down by her opponents in the gubernatorial race on Tuesday night.

While condemning the act, Wanga said that her opponents in the governor race have sensed defeat in the coming elections hence have started to intimidate her by destroying her campaign posters.

"Last night our billboard in Oyugis town was vandalized. We strongly condemn these acts of violence and hooliganism by our opponents who have sensed defeat and hence resorted to these cowardly acts," Wanga said.

She, however, said that she will not be intimidated by the opponents noting that her quest for the governor seat is unstoppable.

The lawmaker is now calling on the police to investigate the matter and bring the perpetrators of the act of vandalism to the book.

"We call upon law enforcement to move with speed and apprehend the culprits. #Genowa is a movement of the people, by the people and for the people. We shall not be cowed or distracted. We soldier on," she said.

The act of vandalism meted on Wanga's campaign poster comes days after she launched her gubernatorial bid in Homabay town in a ceremony that was attended by various political leaders, government officials and business people across the country.

The Woman Rep is expected to battle ODM national chairperson John Mbadi, former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero, former Kasipul MP Oyugi Magwanga, Deputy Governor Hamilton Orata, Kuppet Secretary-General Akelo Misori, County Secretary Isiah Ogwe and Finance Executive Nicholas K'Oriko in the race to succeed Governor Cyprian Awiti.

Other people in the competition include Jared Otieno, Mark Obar and Luis Ogingo.
